The Walking Dead: Season One
zombies are your last worry
The Walking Dead: Season One began in April 2012 on last gen systems and concluded in November of April of that year. It flipped the zombie genre on its head by focusing gameplay on narrative instead of pure action and violence. The Walking Dead: Season One is an episodic interactive game and unlike most interactive games it doesn't involve puzzle solving. Instead, character involvement is the focal point here because every choice you make in game has an affect the story.
The game has won numerous awards including game of the year. If you haven't checked out the game before this is a must buy! It's personally one of my favorite games ever. The Xbox One version also comes with the 400 days DLC. The Walking Dead: Season One's story begins for the first time on Xbox One on October 14.
The Evil Within
fight or flight
The Evil Within is a survival horror game by the original creator of Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami. Mikami stated at the beginning of development of The Evil Within that he wants to take survival horror back to its root. This is accomplished by making players feel alone and isolated as well as making weapons hard to come by in the game.
In The Evil Within, you play as a detective who was ambushed at the scene of a mass murder and knocked unconscious. When awoken, the detective realizes that he is in a crazed world that is full of deranged and grotesque monsters. You must then make your way out of this world to figure out what is was that ambushed you. The Evil Within launches on October 14.
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition
law and order
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will be making the jump to Xbox One this week after its initial release on Xbox 360 in 2012. It will run native 1080p on the Xbox One as well as include all DLC packs. Fun fact about Sleeping Dogs is that it was originally slated to be part of the True Crime series but Square Enix bought the publishing rights to it after it was canceled by Activision.
In Sleeping Dogs, you play as a police officer in Hong Kong who infiltrates the Triad by going undercover. You must prove your allegiance to the Triad by committing crimes, all the while taking down Triad members for the police force. The game is open world which means you are free to go about your missions however you would like. Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition lets you get sweet justice on the Triad starting October 14.
